Former Leeds United defender Lucas Radebe says the only club coaching job he would consider is at Elland Road.

Radebe, who played 200 league games for the Whites, said that along with the national role with South Africa only Leeds could tempt him into coaching.

"I have always said I would not coach at club level, but if I did come back it's got to be Leeds and Leeds only," he told BBC Radio Leeds.

"Other than that it would be with the national team in South Africa."

Radebe, 41, whose testimonial in May 2005 was attended by more than 37,000 at Elland Road, does work for charity and added: "I want to give back to what the game has given me.

"Much as I would like to be on the field of play again, my passion lies with the development of the game at grass roots level in South Africa or coming to join Leeds."
